Loving those Dystopian / Sci-Fi books?? Then you should totally read these!

This past week was Spring Break.
 For me, that means one thing.
My favorite mini reader/blogger (TheReaderLeader) a.k.a my boss's daughter gets to spend the whole week with me at work.
Here's a little video she helped me throw together. 

In honor of the Hunger Games Movie coming out this week.
We thought we'd share a few of our favorite recent Dystopian books and a few that we're dieing to read!
If you ask me..
That's Tons of AWESOME to add to your TBR!
Hope everyone had a great Spring Break!

Only 5 more days till The Hunger Games!

Here's a list of books mentioned in the video!

Under the Never Sky
Shatter Me
The Way We Fall: The Fallen World trilogy
The Pledge
Cinder: Book One in the Lunar Chronicles
The Predicteds
All These Things I've Done (Birthright)
A Long, Long Sleep
Dark Parties
Other Life
What's Left of Me: The Hybrid Chronicles, Book One
For Darkness Shows the Stars
Gravity (The Taking)


  1. I have Shatter Me and Legend on my TBR pile. I can't wait to read them!
    I've read Under the Never Sky and Divergent and I thought they're both good but not amazing. :)

  2. What a great video!
    It's fantastic, many of those books are on my To read list, I'm currently reading the Other Life.
    So far is good!


  3. Loved a lot of these: Divergent, Shatter Me, Legend, Under the Never Sky, Above, Cinder. Starters and Struck are some of the next ones to read. Awesome list. Thanks.

  4. Great list, I have read most and added a few to my wishlist!

  5. I can't see the video right now, but looking at that list.. there are still quite a few I need to read. That's a great list though! Have you read Dark Inside by Jeyn Roberts? AMAZING! It's one of my favorites now.

  6. A long, long sleep became one of my favorite books, so you definitely need to read that one! You can find my review on my blog, if you like ^^

  7. Awesome list. There is a new one coming out in a couple months, This Is Not A Test by Courtney Summers that looks fantastic. And then The Hunt by Andrew Fukuda I can't wait to read either. I'm definitely adding some of these to my list!


  8. Hi! I just wanted to let you know that the Catch Wither Fever event has begun, and our most recent posts have been updated today. Click on the links for the updated posts at The Overstuffed Bookcase and the daily bookmark if you're still interested. We're looking forward to your thoughts! (And I'm a new follower, BTW!)

  9. I have about five of those books in my TBR pile. Great choices.

  10. Dear Amanda,
    Are all the above books dystopian sci-fi? I'm beginning my Ph.D. on it, so I need my books to be both sci-fi and dystopian... Please let me know, I'll be thankful for the help... It'd also help a lot if you could suggest a few names, leaving out the most famous like Neuromancer or The Handmaid's Tale or Fahrenheit 451... Thank you...
